The UACCM Foundation Board is working to raise $250,000 to support construction of a commemorative clock tower and to grow the UACCM Foundation Annual Fund.
It is important for a college to have a recognizable structure, one that is powerful and can help build a well-known identity for the school. The UACCM Commemorative Clock Tower will be situated on the west side of the UACCM campus between the University Center and the Workforce Training Center. Standing at approx. 40 feet tall, the clock tower will serve as a college landmark to passersby on University Boulevard as well as Interstate 40. The clock tower project will boldly display UACCM’s rich history as previous names of the institution are etched along its steps. Over fifty years of history will lay the foundation of a solid future for UACCM through this clock tower for the next fifty years and beyond.
Pave A Path...
We invite you to leave your mark on the clock tower's construction by purchasing your own personalized paver or array of pavers. Pavers will be displayed in a plaza surrounding the clock tower allowing students, alumni, and area citizens to be inspired by the accomplishments and generosity of so many that came before. These pavers are a great way to honor the memory of a loved one, recognize an accomplishment, or to support your community college.
A single 4" by 8" paver with up to three lines of text consisting of up to 20 characters per line starts at $100. For larger areas of text, 8" by 8" pavers and 12" by 12" and 16" by 16" array of pavers are also available. Limited availability of light poles, benches, and cornerstones can also be purchased beginning at $5,000.
Pavers and other recognition options are available on a first-come basis so order yours today! Click the "Give Now" button above or contact the Development Office to give.
Inspiration for the clock tower's construction and the stair-stepped base on which it will stand were taken from two UACCM drafting student's inventive designes. Julianne Razo designed the tower and Jason Scruggs designed the base for a class project and the two ideas were combined into one vision for the future.
